China to actively participate in int'l forestry co-op: vice premier


16:33, September 08, 2011

BEIJING, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese government will continue to actively participate in international forestry cooperation on the basis of mutual respect, equal cooperation and benefits for all, Vice Premier Hui Liangyu said Wednesday.

Hui made the remark at the closing ceremony of the First APEC Meeting of Ministers Responsible for Forestry held in Beijing from Tuesday to Wednesday.

Hui said all APEC members should coordinate their efforts to enhance regional cooperation for "green growth."

Hui said China will increase support to the Asia-Pacific Network for Sustainable Forest Management and Rehabilitation (APFNET). He expressed the country's readiness to share its experiences and information with APEC members.

"China is ready to play an active role in advancing sustainable development of forests in the Asia-Pacific region," Hui said.

The meeting passed the Beijing Forestry Declaration. The document will be submitted to APEC leaders at the Hawaii summit in November.

Chinese President Hu Jintao attended the opening ceremony of the meeting, which drew representatives from the 21 members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum and from other international organizations.
